It's film festival time again In Winston-Salem, and the blog attempted to see an Irish film on Sunday evening. But it arrived too late to be seated, and accepted tickets to a Finnish film in compensation. Several scenes in Letters to Father Jacob have a backdrop of towering birch trees. Jon was reminded of Chekhov, and Susan was reminded of the trees at Horizons Park in Forsyth County last fall.
Jon and Susan are professors at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem. Jon is in the Department of Theatre and Dance. He has lived in Winston-Salem for 25+ years. Susan is in Biology, and has lived in Winston-Salem for 5+ years. Jon's neighborhood is Sherwood Forest; Susan's neighborhood is Ashley Forest. Maurice, who lives in the District of Columbia, serves as occasional capital correspondent.
